Shaq O’Neal, Steve Smith congratulate Obama on winning elections

Former NBA players, Shaquille O’Neal and Steve Smith, who both currently work as NBA analysts, have congratulated Barack Obama on his re-election as the U.S. president.

Both stars congratulated the president via their Twitter accounts yesterday.

The congratulations were different, as Smith congratulated both the president and his spouse, while Shaq was quite brief with a “congrats prez” message.

Incumbent U.S. President Barack Obama successfully fended off challenger Gov. Mitt Romney to remain in the Oval Office through 2016.

Shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday, the CNN and Fox News cable networks announced that their projections had estimated a win for Obama.

Key battleground states Ohio and Pennsylvania fell to Obama, which were two states considered critical for a Romney upset. Obama is to continue serving the U.S. as president for the next four years.
